And Eminem murdered you on your own shit

from Nas – Ether Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A lot of people think Eminem’s verses on “Renegade” were way better than Jay-Z’s, and it is of course always embarrassing to be outshined on your own song.

Then again, “Renegade” was originally Eminem’s song, first recorded with Royce da 5'9.

Did Eminem kill Jay-Z on the song? We report, you decide.


In an interview with Rosenberg Radio Jay Z admitted that Eminem had the better verse. His defense was in the essence that every dog has it´s day and that he has had the better verse on the majority of his songs. Blaming Nas for the phenomena that people wonders who murdered who before the record is already released and debate afterward who bodied who — instead of just enjoying the song.

Also Jay Z later admitted that he indeed was outshined on “Renegade” on the song “A Star is Born”:

His flow on Renegade, fucking awesome
Applaud him
